Cadiz Springs State Recreation Area is a state park unit of Wisconsin, United States, featuring two reservoirs on a spring-fed creek. The creek was dammed to provide water recreation opportunities in the Driftless Area, a region with few natural lakes. The total surface area of Beckman and Zander Lakes is 95 acres (38 ha). The current park was created in 1980 when Cadiz Springs State Park was combined with the Browntown Wildlife Area.
